What an exciting road ahead… Marry well friends. Choose forgiveness in the hard times. Serve, regardless of how you’re feeling. Let the words on your tongue be filled with honor. Give grace when your spouse deserves it the least. Choose amazing friends – they live in your marriage, whether you know it or not. Love hard, fiercely, ferociously, vulnerably, honestly, because that takes great courage. Wait well beauties…

Marriage is not for the faint of heart.
